look over the horizon

We actually see the sun before it breaks the horizon in the morning.  The rays are bent up by the atmosphere (called refraction)
So sunrise is actually an optical illusion.  We see the sun before it's really there.  When we read the Bible, as we pray, and as we walk with the Lord, He gives us an "over the horizon" view called "faith" that gives our hearts assurance, before the outcomes and answers actually break the horizon.   
Let's look "over the horizon" with eyes of faith!
Romans 10:8 But what does it say? "The word is near you; it is in your mouth and in your heart," that is, the word of faith we are proclaiming: 9 That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.
Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see. 2 This is what the ancients were commended for.  3 By faith we understand that the universe was formed at God's command, so that what is seen was not made out of what was visible.
